Its lovely to see stores that are creating traditional shopfronts and fun window schemes.

Hand painted shop signage

This photo was sent to me by a very good friend who saw this butchers shop in Shrewsbury and loved the tag line hand painted onto the front of the building.

I love it to and just wish more stores would use the architecture of their buildings in a similar way instead of covering them with ugly plastic signs or banners.

Bring back the old crafts is what i say.




Hand painted graphic – Shoreditch





Love this hand painted Graphic on the corner of a cafe in Shorditch. This just goes to show that we do not need to buy horrible plastic signs, use the natural architecture of your premises and go back to the old traditions, they will get better with age and outlive the nasty plastics signs.

Thats my rant of the day out of the way – feel better for that.

Long live traditional sign signwriting.
